Kickass shadow president

Kickass, the doorstop dog, with the deepest apologies to Robert Louis Stevenson and his “My Shadow.”

I have an orange president who goes “Twee, twee, twee,”
And what can be the use of him is more than I can see.                                                                                       He is not a bit like me from the heels up to the head,                                                                                                And I see his absurd image when I jump into my bed.

The funniest thing about him is the way he likes to crow,                                                                                       Like a playground bully who is nothing but show,                                                                                                 He sometimes tells stories that are ten feet tall,                                                                                                      And he often seems to have no brains at all.

He hasn’t got a notion how the real world works,                                                                                                      He runs the White House just for personal perks .                                                                                                     He doesn’t read so he’s dumb and dense,                                                                                                                His foreign policy is just one big fence.

One morning very early before the sun was up,                                                                                                         I rose and found the shinning dew on every buttercup.                                                                                            On TV the orange president still ranted amiss.                                                                                                     And everyone shouted, “I got a place  you can kiss!”
